Server reset – Mythbusting

Many players have been asking about the server reset and speculating what may and may not happen. Time to set the record straight so if you see someone asking you can direct them to this article.

When is the reset?
At this time we have no exact date but it will be in early 2020. So sometime between January and June. We will inform players with a server announcement 6 weeks prior with a reset date. Until then don’t panic and continue playing as normal.

WE ARE NOT RESETTING FOR 1.15!
We will update but not reset.

What is getting reset?
Shorter list is what doesn’t get reset, the creative world and player ranks. So say goodbye to the survival world, your balances, inventories, enderchests etc. They will all be reset so everyone starts off on the same even playing field.

Can we keep our builds?
You are welcome to build it in the creative world but do not ask staff to copy it for you. They are all busy enough.

What happens to the donator regions and perks?
Donator regions, warps and player perks will be reset so donators will get a whole new 200×200 region and their 2 warps. Same with the fly command, players who paid for this perk keep it.

Whats the theme for the next map?
That will be decided with a public vote when we announce the date for the reset. We will put out a call for theme suggestions and from there a public poll will be set up. Top voted theme will become the 2020 Cooee spawn theme

What about the plugins? Whats changing?
Not a lot of changes with the plugins, mainly how money will be made. Jobs will be replaced with a quests based plugin. You can also make money with the shop.

Will the server go into chaos mode before the reset?
Yes, 2 weeks before the server goes down for reset maintenance players will be allowed to grief other players, blow up builds etc. Donators can use their regions to stop it happening to their base if they wish. We may even include meteor strikes for this time period.

TL/DR – Server will reset next year, everything but creative and ranks is reset. Don’t panic until then.

Bushfire emergency appeal – 2019

We are at the end of spring and already sweltering through heat waves, droughts and more bushfires burning across the country than I can count on my left foot. Too many people have lost their belongings, pets, livestock and crops and as of this article 4 have sadly lost their lives to these devastating fires. So many players here at CooeeMC are also in the line of fire all of whom we care deeply for and hope for each and every one of them to stay safe.

For the remainder of 2019 I will be donating 25% of all server donations into the Bushfire emergency appeals.

I also encourage all who are able, to dig deep and help those in need during these fires. You can donate at any of the following locations.

NSW Rural Fire Service
Salvation Army
Red Cross
St Vincent de Paul
RSPCA NSW

Whats New – October 2019

What’s this? What’s this? There’s colour everywhere, whats is this? ahem, sorry I promise not to sing again…
So what is new at CooeeMC? Well for a start we have our very own resource packs courtesy of FungusKing_III and Intellectuality. They can be accessed from the website under the CooeeMC heading. We also re-vamped the Resource Pack page with helpful videos to explain how to download and install resource packs, shaders and optifine.

You may also notice some changes in items on the server, we have added a mmoitems plugin to help with the future events coming to the server. Halloween is coming up fast, events for this will begin around the 16th of October. We are still ironing out the details on both the event and plugin so hold tight on this. Any item that isn’t normal put aside for a later date.

Besides the mmoitems plugin we have added a few others in, some for use now and others in the future of the server. Sleeping has gone back to being just one person for now as the plugin kept being spammed by players even after asked to stop. If this new one is spammed sleeping WILL be disabled.

The redstone competition has finished and judging has also been concluded. Congratulations to those who participated in the event, you have been ranked as follows.

What’s New – July 2019

Another month has passed by on CooeeMC and with it another load of plugins and datapacks have come and gone while we work on making the server a unique place for everyone to enjoy. This month we mostly saw a number of updates to existing plugins, a small handful of new plugins/datapacks and the removal of old ones that have run its course. We also updated our ranks which I will explain later in this post.

One of the newest additions this month was the bloodmoon datapack which gives mobs a buff on the 7th night. These buffs vary from mob to mob as listed below. When the blood moon rises you cannot sleep, so good luck 🙂 Also every 144 nights the blood moon will become stronger currently we are on level 2 but if it becomes far too difficulty it will be reset back to level 1.

So what else was added in? Marriage master is our new plugin, yes this means you can now marry another player on the server at the church of our lady Pugman found at spawn. You will need to speak to a priest/priestess to perform the ceremony (any staff member). We will have some limitations on this, you can only get married to one player at a time and if you divorce you must wait 30 days before asking us to marry you again.

As for our datapacks we have now added in Blast furnace extender, so you can use it for more items, blood moon (listed above), item frame colours, kill empty boats (admin command), moveable cakes, mob health bars, rotten flesh curer and lastly stone cutter damage.

Finally our ranks, only changes that were made is the subscription donator rank is now called supporter and will remain dark cyan and the builder rank is now issued to players helping with server builds and will be a light cyan colour. Donators will also be able to edit their regions once again as I fixed the issue with people editing global regions.

You can no longer select all flags only select ones will work, they are as follows: use, passthrough, interact, chest-access, ride, tnt, vehicle-place/destroy, lighter, creeper-explosion, other-explosion, mob-spawning, lightning, snow-melt/fall, ice-melt/form, entry/exit, greeting/farewell.
This means you cannot add owners to your region this will now only be for the ones who’s regions are combined.

Have a good one,
CooeeMC Staff
